Evening meals for homeless people being accommodated in hotels in Glasgow have been stopped.

Glasgow City Council has been housing more people in hotels since the pandemic and providing them with breakfast lunch and an evening meal.

The policy has contributed to a reduction in rough sleeping in the city with the council reporting the number of people sleeping on the streets is down to single figures.

The operators of a soup kitchen in Glasgow city centre said they have noticed an increase in homeless people attending in the last week.

Colin McInnes, of Homeless Project Scotland, said: “We are concerned for people’s welfare, when they can’t afford a hot meal. These are people who can’t afford to buy food and the council is taking it away from them.”
